a diamond in the rough

Diamond Bakery
744 W Garvey Ave
Monterey Park, CA 91754
(626) 289-5172

price: $
verdict: it's aight

i am strangely drawn to the shredded pork buns made at this bakery. ok, maybe it's not altogether strange. my shredded pork love dates back to my ghetto college days when i was only capable of making rice. to make life interesting, i would sprinkle some of this shredded goodness on for a quick meal. ahh. poverty.

these buns though, are pretty fabulous. the bread is really soft and there's this mayo concoction that they shlack on top so the shredded pork will adhere. it makes for a good quick snack when you are on the run. i warn you though, this yumminess might not speak to most folks, but for me, it speaks volumes. it says "eat me. i am delicious." the portugese style egg tarts they have here are REALLY yummy as well. if you are bored with the traditional egg tarts, the creaminess of the portuguese style ones will probably leave you hankering for more. the other stuff here...mmm...not so much. possibly the only 2 items worth checking out at this bakery have already been listed...pork and cream.
